52-Week Range: $22.89 to $34.78Book Value: $12.35 Price to Book: 2.64 Third quarter earnings is highly anticipated by Wall Street expecting a favorable report after the market closes on Sept. 19. Analysts' mean appraisal is presently 47 cents a share, a gain of 3 cents (6.4%) from 44 cents during the corresponding quarter last year. The last date Adobe released earnings was June 19 and the closing price was $32.89. Based on a recent price of $32.85, shares are down 0.1%. The average analyst target price for ADBE is $34.27. The trailing 12-month price-to-earnings ratio is 17.6, the mean fiscal year estimate price-to-earnings ratio is 16.3, based on earnings of $1.98 per share this year. Shares have traded slightly lower in the last month of trading. Shares are about break even at 1.5% less than a month ago. This doesn't give us much insight as to what to expect, but it's a fair statement to say that investors should not expect to get the legs knocked out from under them this release. Currently, 2.9% short interest based on the float is small and not a big concern.
